Well its cast iron so the welds will not be pretty ;) But give it a go!

How does the turbo look without the flange ?

I may be able to make a new cadfile ;)

Jonas. this is what the flange look like.
I heard that if you preheat the cast iron it wil be weldable quite nice.
any input on that?

No comment on the heating part.. but jonasN said to me ones that if you weld on the castpart with the mig and then grind it down then there is no problem welding on it again ;)

I think they have that flange at www.klracing.se

have done some moe work.
I had to reloate the wastegate because the stock location was to high to clear the body. it's pretty short but I think it will work. :wink:

here's the plenum. I know its not the ultimate design but l give it a try.
I have added some metal inside the plenum for the air in the runners to bounce against.

here's the plenum on the motor.

Why do you need plenum volume in a turbo motor in the first place?

Tnx,

Nice setup !
Why did you put the turbo behind cylinder n° 3 instead of the otherside (n° 1) ?

Very nice!

Why is it weld on the side of the flanges? :?

Intressting way of mounting the knockingsensor :)

I really like the way this engine is coming along! Nice work on the downpipe 8)

But I have some suggestions for you ;)

1. Get a bigger breather! That one wasn't even enough on a stock 2L type4 that I got in one of my cars.

2. Mount the temp sensor in one of the heads

Great work! :) Will you be at any meets this summer ?
